"India to the World will leave you more than amazed. This important historical volume written by veteran missionary William Turner, maintains a fast pace as it reveals the miraculous testimony of the missionary life of Harry E. Scism. This book tells a profound story filled with triumph, danger, victories, set backs and amazing adventures. Ultimately however, it is a griping account of the Scism family’s full submission to the call of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the face of great adversity. The reader is offered great insight into the methodology, generosity and determination that built an extraordinary and fearless missionary team that reached across many cultures with the Gospel. Harry Scism brought many thousands of souls into the Apostolic faith. His unique approach, love for God and lost souls, together with an inexhaustible energy, helped him develop a paradigm for successful missionaries worldwide — and promoted him to become the United Pentecostal Church International’s leader of Global Missions. Turner is careful to reveal that even through the fatigue of constant travel, the responsibility and care for his family, sickness, loss, danger and political pressure, the beloved Scism maintained his famous sense of humor and his distinct personal touch among his acquaintances and friends. Every believer must read this book. You will learn of a great modern-day miracle and the story of how millions have been born again because of one man’s love, passion and commitment to take the Apostolic message around the world." —PAUL D.
